Gredi Gracari ’17
I LEARNED HOW TO BET ON MYSELF AT KING’S.
I came for the combination of academics and the strong financial aid package, but the sense of community was the driving force of my King’s education,” said Gredi Gracari, who emigrated from Albania when he was a child.
“People at King’s pushed me to be a better professional and a better person. They pushed me to step out of my comfort zone, whether it was by trying rugby, encouraging me to add a minor in human resources after seeing my passion for business, or applying for the master’s program at Notre Dame. Without the guidance from King’s, I probably wouldn’t have had the confidence to make that leap.
“King’s gave me the opportunity to explore things and taught me that anything is possible with hard work. I carry that with me to this day.”

IF YOU HAVE THE DRIVE, KING’S WILL GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO STAND OUT.
“I knew that I wanted a high-quality business school, but relationships were essential to my choice. From my professors to the president, King’s people know you. It’s on you as a student to seek the opportunity, but once you make the effort—especially an extra effort—people will move mountains for you. Great opportunities are right at our doorstep, but it’s up to us to open the door and walk through it.”

Associate Vice President, Student Success
I WAS DRAWN TO KING’S BY THE COLLEGE’S STUDENT-CENTERED MISSION.
“There is a great sense of intentionality around student success here. This campaign will facilitate investments in programs and spaces that serve the whole student. We are guiding and empowering students to learn the tools necessary to navigate college and life.
“Philanthropic support will leverage new programs, spaces, and technologies that enable staff to collaborate more closely and partner with students, putting all of their effort into helping every student reach their full potential.
“Student success is essential to the King’s experience, and our commitment to students. Providing students with the resources to connect, study, and work with faculty and staff who want to see them excel is so important to our mission.”
